Nestled far from the city’s hustle and bustle, Picotin Express boasts a lush tranquil backdrop that makes it popular for families with young ones, weddings and late-night events. The casual dining menu offers all-daybreakfast on weekends and public holidays alongside a succinct à la carte menu studded with bistro staples.
Take your pick from bar snacks such as buffalo wings tossed in hot sauce and deep-fried mozzarella sticks, and appetisers like the excellent goat cheese on toasted brioche, and the smoked salmon with fennel salad.
Otherwise, go for heftier mains such as honey glazed pork ribs, lamb shank scented with rosemary, and beef bourguignon spiked with a good splash of Pinot Noir. For something even meatier, opt for the classic steak frites, a 250-gramme hunk of ribeye served with golden fries, homemade béarnaise and a small side of green salad.
There is also a small Choose Your Own pasta selection comprising three different sauces: beef ragu, carbonara and spicy aglio olio. Alternatively, zoom in on the popular pizza selection. The thin crust wood-fired pizzas come highly recommended. Choose from 12 different varieties including the unusual Bashkir that’s topped with yoghurt,tandoori chicken and coriander; and the Java with chilli crabmeat and spring onions.
Desserts comprise a hit list of evergreens, from warm apple crumble topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream to tangy lemon tart and sticky date pudding with toffee sauce.
